Palme d’Or winner 1997. The philosophical tale of a man so tired of life that he wants to commit suicide offers Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami a chance to ruminate on the meaning of existence. Cruising the outskirts of Tehran, Mr Badii unsuccessfully searches for an accomplice willing to bury him after his death, until he finally strikes a bargain with a museum guard. But before the guard agrees to do the deed, he wants to know why Mr Badii is desperately keen to die and dispense with even the smallest joys of nature, such as the taste of cherries. Kiarostami’s film is an understated tale of self-discovery and an unexpected affirmation of the very things that make life worth living.
